The City of Pasadena released more information Wednesday on the details of Lincoln Avenue construction that will affect drivers through spring of next year:
Roadway improvements on Lincoln Avenue, from Forest Avenue north up to the City limits, have begun and are scheduled to continue through spring 2013, according to the Pasadena Department of Public Works. The important street and streetscape improvements are key components for the revitalization of Lincoln Avenue and will enhance the corridor for pedestrians, public transit, vehicles and bicyclists.
What to Expect:
- Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The contractor may adjust work hours to accommodate traffic and pedestrians.
- Motorists are advised to use caution while driving in the area as traffic circulation is scheduled to be reduced to one lane in each direction during work hours.
Project highlights include:
- a rubberized asphalt overlay of concrete pavement
- replacing damaged curb, gutter, sidewalk areas
- curb ramps with detectable warning tiles to enhance pedestrian access
Partial funding for the $2 million project comes from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) Rubberized Pavement Grant.
Sully-Miller Contracting Company, Brea, Calif., is under contract with the Pasadena Department of Public Works to complete the project.
The CalRecycle grant program promotes markets and uses for recycled-content surfacing products made from waste tires generated in California. The goal is to decrease adverse environmental impacts from unlawful disposal or stockpiling of waste tires. Rubberized asphalt concrete is a proven road paving material that has been used in California since the 1970s. It is made by blending ground tire rubber with asphalt binder and mixed with conventional road aggregate materials.
